A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Modesty is meekness and wisdom combined.
IT IS ENOUGH
"Enough! said Israel. It is enough! My son Joseph is still alive! I must go and see him before I die." [Genesis (Bereshith) 45. 28 Tanakh, Torah]
Enough in Hebrew is "rab" meaning greater, more numerous, exceedingly much. Here, Jacob is overcome with thankful emotion at the news that Joseph, his beloved son long given up for dead, is still alive. Later Pharaoh, for a very different reason, cried— "Plead with the LORD for it is enough that there be an end of GOD'S thunder and of hail. I will let you go, you need stay no longer." [Exodus (Shemot) 9. 28 Tanakh, Torah]
"It is enough! Stay your hand." [2 Samuel (Shemuel Bet) 24. 16 Tanakh, Nevi'im; 1 Chronicles/Dibre Hayamin Alef 21. 15] ALMIGHTY GOD gave this command to the Angel of Death to stop destroying the Israelites after David sinned in numbering the people. When Elijah thought he could bear no more, "Enough! —he cried. Now, O LORD, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers." [1 Kings (Melakhim Alef) 19. 4 Tanakh, Nevi'im]
Moreover, "Three things are insatiable; Four never say— "Enough!" Sheol, a barren womb, earth that cannot get enough water, and fire which never says— "Enough!" [Proverbs (Mishle) 30. 15 - 16 Tanakh, Kethuvim]
The LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH said, "It is enough for a disciple that he be as his teacher, and the servant like his master." [Matthew 10. 25] As the time of HIS arrest was drawing nearer, JESUS, the BELOVED, told HIS disciples, "It is enough! The hour has come; behold, the SON OF MAN is being betrayed into the hands of sinners." [Mark 14. 41] When they produced two swords, "HE said to them— It is enough." [Luke 22. 38]
There are many circumstances which will cause a person to say enough already! But, in the ages to come there will never be an end to "the exceeding riches of HIS grace in HIS kindness toward us in CHRIST JESUS." [Ephesians 2. 7] The great abundance of our LOVING REDEEMER’S blessings will never be viewed as enough for HIS mercies never fail.
My desire is to be with my SAVIOR & KING, MESSIAH YESHUA, to behold HIS glorious face and worship at HIS feet. I am confident and absolutely certain, that we can never know enough of our amazing, magnificent LORD GOD!
Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Blessed are YOU, MOST HOLY ONE, to be more like YOUR BELOVED SON is the cry of our hearts. Show us mercy, O LORD GOD , and grant us YOUR salvation. Eternal is YOUR power, YOU are mighty to save. I give YOU praise and glory, O LORD.
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace.
